According to a report published by NDTV on March 18, Elvish Yadav, a 26-year-old YouTuber, has admitted his role in bringing snakes and snake venom to rave parties he organized. During questioning, he allegedly confessed to knowing individuals arrested last year for supplying snake venom. Initially, Yadav denied involvement, but later admitted to meeting the suspects at parties and staying in contact with them, sources told the news outlet.

The social media influencer was arrested on March 18 and remanded to 14 days of judicial custody.
